Hong Kong - WILHK Launches 2019 Mentoring Programme for Future Leaders: Applications are now open!

Updated: Jan 18, 2019

Women in Law Hong Kong is, this week, launching the fourth year of the Women in Law Hong Kong Mentoring Programme and is inviting applications starting today.  The programme is free of charge for participants and will feature 12 mentors and 10 mentees from Hong Kong’s legal industry.


For mentees, the programme aims to empower you with confidence, help you develop a strong support network and gain and refine key skills to help you navigate and grow your careers.


For mentors, you will have the gratifying experience of making a difference to a young professional’s career while contributing to gender diversity. You will also have an opportunity to network with other industry professionals and learn from a group of young driven female lawyers on new developments and practices in today’s legal space.


The programme sessions will run from April to November 2019, and participants will come together for one-on-one mentoring, specially-tailored workshops, mentoring “lean-in” circles and networking events.


Key dates of the formal program can be found on the WILHK website.
